Kuldeep shines as India respond to Kohli absence, Smith hundred

Kohli's replacement as skipper'chilled. Pic Omnisport

The 22-year-old sent down a delivery which pitched around the off-stump, kicked off and kissed the shoulder of Warner's bat before reaching Ajinkya Rahane in the slip.

Kuldeep said the idea was to restrict runs as wickets would then come automatically.

The Australia skipper's Test average now stands at a sparkling 61.57, bettered only by former colleague Adam Voges (61.87) and the iconic Don Bradman (99.94) among those to have batted in a minimum of 20 innings.

On a day where Steven Smith yet again appeared to be batting on a different level to his team-mates, there were also timely half-centuries by David Warner - who was dropped on the first ball of the match - and Wade, in what was the first instance of either player passing 50 during the series. "It's fun to learn it for him and then dismiss batsmen from his own country". I was working on my variations since I started to play cricket; the wrong 'uns, flippers and chinaman.

Kuldeep, in fact, considers Warne as his idol.

"It was a dream come true when I first met and talked to him [Warne]". I did exactly what he (Warne) told me to do. "He has promised that he will have another session with me in near future", the youngster said.

"I remember hearing the sound coming off his bat - it was a handsome noise as he was absolutely hitting them in the middle", Jones recently recalled to Cricbuzz.




Kuldeep produced a brilliant ball to beat Peter Handscomb in flight and bowl him for 8.

Smith and Warner took Australia to 144 for the loss of just one wicket, but Kuldeep's post-lunch spell turned the favour of the opening day, and Wade admitted Australia had squandered their positive start.

Australia landed as the underdogs in the series against world number one India, who were riding the crest of a 19-test unbeaten run, but are now in a strong position to clinch the series.

Highly impressed with India's debut bowler Kuldeep Yadav, Australia's wicket keeper batsman Matthew Wade admitted that it was hard to pick his deliveries initially and took few balls to get used to his bowling. "I did not want him to know what I was bowling".

Now Australia's bowlers will have to support their batters after Matthew Wade, who scored a series-high 57, conceded Australia left some runs out in the middle.

Kuldeep Yadav, the Chinaman bowler became a sensation in a matter of sensation as he helped India get back into the virtual final of Border-Gavaskar Trophy at Dharamsala.

"I suppose a little bit yeah", Wade said.
